Aging, physical fitness and endothelial function: Are all ultracentenarians marathon runners?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This comment focuses on the background and implications of a study published in this issue of Clinical Science by Franzoni and colleagues showing that physical training improves nitric oxide availability and microvascular distensibility not only in young, but also in elderly, individuals. The main features of the study as well as its potential limitations will be also highlighted.
